(with release of new book, see link below or search Amazon
and I can sign at PNWAS campout in August, since hard to do on ZOOM)
As will be seen, ancient cordage (and knots) on the Northwest Coast were some of the most common artifacts, often hundreds and sometimes thousands in most NW wet site excavations. Cordage was basic to the complex Maritime Societies on the Northwest Coast of North America, from whale harpoon cedar bough twisted ropes, to spruce root string nets to cedar bark string warps wrapped with bird skins strips with down adhering to make thick warm blankets.
Though we cannot have a book signing for this new Cordage book through ZOOM, let me know if you buy one and I will send a personalize signing to insert in the book. Thanks, Dale (email@example.com )
